There are 2 KEY-LOCKS on the CashRegister:
------------------------------------------
The LEFT one locks the opening of the REGISTRATION AREA
( normally LOCKED, key in  hands of the the owner !)
The RIGHT one locks the CASH DRAWER
( normally UN-Locked, key in  hands of the operator !)

ENTER A NUMBER:
---------------
Everytime a number is entered and the handle is pulled,
the number is printed and added to memory. 

RESET KEYBOARD:
---------------
If a wrong figure is entered in a column, repeat with the right
figure. To clear the keyboard: Pull the top-left [E] red lever.

IDENTIFICATIONS:
----------------
(a)
The number entered can be asigned with a letter A, B, C or D.
(e.g. The different grades of gasolin or diesel sold )
These numbers are added to the memory.
(b)
An IDENTIFICATION-Number can be printed (= NOT ADDED !):
( R E M A R K :  Because the length of the slot in the top,
it is only possible, when the red lever is inserted downward !) 
Push-and-hold the top-right red lever [Z] & pull the handle;
Release red lever & handle.
(c)
The ACRYLIC-WINDOW can be pulled down
to make NOTES on paper with a pencil.

The total sum will be printed when the top-right red-lever [Z]
is pulled-and-hold & the handle is pulled. The memory will be
cleared after releasing red lever & handle.

R E M A R K S :    How to get a NEW RIBBON for this old machine ???
===================================================================
There are cartridges for MATRIX-Printers on the market with 8 mm
NYLON-Ribbons. Check the cartridge before buying because there are
several available with different lengths.  In some cases you can
get 3 spools out of one cartridge!  You will get your fingers
dirty when you do the respooling - but the result is great!
And remember:  BOTH SIDES HAVE TO BE SPOOLED CLOCKWISE ...
